If you are among the 10 million Americans who have osteoporosis (also called bone loss), you are at special risk for suffering a weakening of the hips, spine, wrists and other bones. That can lead to painful fractures, spinal curvature and loss of mobility. Fortunately, early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent fractures, decrease pain and minimize further bone loss.

The osteoporosis experts at the Allegheny Health Network Orthopaedic Institute can help you to manage your symptoms and enjoy a higher quality of life. We give you every available treatment option, including medications, hormone replacement therapies, rehabilitation and surgery.

You can count on our team to coordinate your personalized treatment plan every step of the way. We will be there to support your challenges, keep your spirits up, listen to your concerns and strengthen your overall well-being.
